Aussie game charts: January 29-February 3

Sight Training takes top spot again.

Sight Training: Enjoy Exercising and Relaxing Your Eyes for the Nintendo DS has spent another week at the top of the Australian game charts, according to data trackers GfK Australia. This is the game's third week on sale in Australia, and the second week in a row that it's held the number one position.

Despite a dip the previous week, Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games for the Wii has picked up traction again, climbing to number two in the chart for the week of January 29 to February 3. More Brain Training from Dr Kawashima: How Old Is Your Brain? for the DS fell down three places to number five. WWE SmackDown! vs. RAW 2008 for the PlayStation 2 also lost ground, taking out the sixth position. Uncharted: Drake's Fortune for the PlayStation 3 made it into the top 10 for the first time in 2008, sitting in seventh position, as did Ubisoft's Assassin's Creed for the PS3 at number eight. The Xbox 360 version of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare has narrowly scraped into ninth position, whereas its PlayStation 3 counterpart finished the week at number 10.

The Simpsons Game continues its winning streak at number one in the PSP-specific chart, while the Nintendo DS version of the game sits at number five on the DS-specific chart.

Cant Believe Ghost Squad is 2nd on wii, beating MARIO! wowowow! Thats great!, Nice Sega, NIIIICE, its a great game tho, deserves its spot


Atleast the top 10 is shaping up better, take out Bratz and we should be good :D


Good to see Uncharted do well down under. :) Unsurprising that Sight Training is at the top. Ridiculous amount of ads shown through the Aussie Open.


It's hard to know if this is a good thing or a bad thing. Aussie's get the shaft when it comes to release dates... I don't even know if the top games are even out there or not yet to compare if they are skipping games on purpose or it just isn't available yet.


#2 Mario & Sonic, #3 Bratz; WTF?!


How was Renegade Squadron 7 and 8 on the PSP?


the Top 10 PS3 game list is very repesctable


aussies sure haf gd tastes ^^ :) ps3 all the way


How can wow be still be selling so well? geese...


Ghost Squad is actually selling well, thats awesome It's a great and deserves the great sales because it's a great port.

Sight Training is proving to be the next Brain Training (expect Maths training to do well). Just need to get that odd rubbish game such as Bratz off the charts and things will be perfect.


Bratz: 4 Real, ok then...


only one 360 game in the top ten good onya


Interesting to see that the top 2 PS3 games sold higher then the highest 360 game.
